Vivid is a boutique content marketing agency set up by a crack team of award-winning brand content specialists.

We help brands build customer relationships that last by creating beautifully engaging print magazines, digital publications, websites, apps, videos, emails and more.



Big agency talent, without the big agency

Our boutique content marketing approach brings a level of personal attention and passion that traditional agencies simply can't offer. Every member of the Vivid team knows every client and every project inside out. When you partner with Vivid you get the whole team and its collective experience focused on telling your story. And telling it exceptionally well.

We know that every client, every audience and every brief is different – which is why we don't do 'time tested' assembly line solutions. Instead we listen, apply a vivid imagination and create brilliant content across any channel.

Rob abbott

Creative Director
After a start in agency land, Rob switched to publishing in the early 90s. Since then he’s worked on hundreds of consumer print titles, websites and digital editions, as well as for clients including Sony, Microsoft and Adobe.

During his time as Creative Director of Future plc, he managed the creative process – from conception to delivery – many, many times.

When he’s not at work, you’ll find Rob either dismantling something to find out how it works, or lining something up – ‘design is everywhere’, according to him.
